Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Uncirculated 1966 Grateful (undead)

kudos to the thread a few days back about the Charlie Miller 5-30-1969 tape, which pointed me to the bit torrent site that had the Miller and a 2 disc set of mostly uncirculated 1966 GD -

Hey now, it has Twist & Shout!
Also a blues jam that is very similar yet different than the one from 3-12-1966

LMA archive version has Pigpen on keyboards, the uncirc. doesn't.

a partial You Don't Have To Ask with good energy, a Midnight Hour that has the plug pulled - good for a laugh, amusing banter at the end...

3 versions of Viola Lee Blues with at least one thats new to me,


I'd like to write a review; meanwhile, here are the set lists from the text*

How much is really uncirc.?

I can't say, it's hard to find much of it anywhere besides the excellent Schoolgirl>You Don't Love Me>Schoolgirl and Pigpen Rap (you can stream those here).

Don't Ease Me In

"Longshoreman's Hall 1st Night" - 7" Reel 1/2 Track @ 15IPS:
Beat It On Down The Line
Schoolgirl>You Don't Love Me>Schoolgirl (original reel cuts)

Unlabeled Reel:
Pigpen Raps
Billy, Bobby, and Pigpen>
New Orleans (sort of an attempt)
Twist and Shout

CD #2
"Longshoreman's Hall 3rd Night" - 10" Reel 1/2 Track @ 15IPS:
It's A Sin
Viola Lee Blues
Midnight Hour
Beat It On Down The Line
Blues Jam (with Jorma and Jack) Note: reel runs out before the end

Pauley Ballroom #2 (no date) - 10" Reel 1/2 Track @ 15IPS:

My two favorites from '66 are these -
Really cool Midnight Hours, and a more poppy/bluesy Dead!

I got Vintage Dead (9/16/66) when it came out in '73, and esp. dug the I Know You Rider and Dancin In The Street,
but yeah, the Midnight Hour on that tied it all up really nice!

But have ya heard the Primal 1966 Uncirulated Gems (sic) yet?
